I have used calculator to get proper angles and values for duna transfer. It looks like that :

I have got those values :

Phase anfle 117.10'

Ejection angle 18 to prograde

Ejection Dv 3261 ms

As I understand it Phase angle is angle between Kerbin and duna, and when I looka at the ingame map it loks like this angle is 117'

Ejection angle is angle between Kerbin prograde and point where I'm supposed to perform ejection burn.

Calculator says it's supposed to be 18', so if we assume that kerbin prograde would be 12 o clock, then I should burn at around 13, right ?

So I place maneuver node at 13 o clock and ad 3261 dv prograde burn, and that should do the trick. However no matter how much dv I put, I won't get encounter. I tried to put maneuver node in different places, I tried to add a lot more prograde dv (10k and more), tried to tweak normal/abnormal. No matter what I do, I won't get encounter. All I have is Kerbin escape marker, but no Duna encounter. What am I doing wrong ?
